NOW UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT - FROM SEPTEMBER 2015!! Riad Sara is a beautifully restored 14th Century read that has been running as a guest house since 2002. Now operating under a British-Moroccan management team, the Riad Sara staff are trained to address the needs of each guest on an individual basis. From providing a calm base for a city-break, to organising a pan-Morocco adventure - we cater to the needs of our clients. Located in an easily-accessible street, just a 2 minute walk from the taxi stand in the public square at Batha, Riad Sara is perfectly located to be both quiet, but at the same time convenient. The main entrance to the medina, Bab Boujloud, is only a 5 minute walk from the riad, taxis to the new town are a 2 minute walk, and there are multitudes of restaurants and bazaars within a short walking distance. Our tour desk can organise day trips to nearby sites, as well as longer treks to farther afield places. Hammam trips are arranged daily, and massage and henna painting can be arranged at your request.

Access to Riad Sara is through a couple of alley ways. The outside is no indication of the interior. You walk through the entrance to an extravagant tiled courtyard with a fountain. The rooms are locarted around the center of the courtyard with a total of 3 floors and a roof top deck. Each room had their own private bath. The details are breathtaking. We were greeted with mint tea and biscuits. Followed by a mouth watering meal prepared at the Riad by a talented cook. Ali, the owner, showed us much hospitality. I highly recommend this Riad for a traditional yet modern accommodation.

Our large and merry group stayed here for 3 nights and just loved it! It is so beautiful - every inch covered in mosaic tiles and bright colors. The rooms and bathrooms were huge and comfortable (the shower rocked!), and we made good use of all the common area rooms as well. We especially liked the rooftop sitting area, and were out there most nights. The food was delicious and the owner/manager Ali made sure that we always had everything we needed! This is my second trip to Morocco, and the first time my group only ate here and liked it so much that we asked to stay here this time. We were not disappointed.

Riad Sara was booked for us by our tour operator. You would never expect to see such a beautiful place behind plain door in the alley. Courtyard is absolutely stunning. Rooms are huge and with amazing tilework. Staff can not be better and friendlier. Food, dinner and breakfast, was excellent. Location is also very good. The reason for 4 stars is the bathroom. Looks like original tiles but there is black mold on the walls and ceiling and I just can’t give it 5 stars.
